Subject: Better than expected.
Considering the date, 1935, I thought that it was well acted and well scripted. I thought that the relationship between the cop and the newspaper woman was not the usual twist. But watch it and see if you agree with me. A good family movie.

Subject: Beter than I thought from the reviews
--There was good atmosphere, some fair acting, a plot, a mystery--kept me guessing till the end, what more do you want? My wife & I like something that does not have the smut & graphic violence of today!
--Better than was rated!

Yet another murder mystery with a spunky female reporter investigating while interfering and bantering with the police. The story is conventional: it's always the person least suspected and no clue will help solve the mystery, which is revealed at the end with all the suspects gathered. Instead of in an old house, this takes place largely in an observatory/planetarium complex. Pacing and acting are adequate. The hero has a tendency to speak fast and mumble.

I downloaded the mpeg1 file. Audio and video are fine, although there are a couple short glitches from the original print.
